Socialist Candidates For Birmingham Confirmed – Join The Fightback!

The nominations are in, and we can now confirm that more socialist candidates than ever will be standing in local and parliamentary elections in Birmingham next month. With over 600 council and 130 MP candidates across the country for the Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition (TUSC), this will be the largest left challenge to Labour and the other establishment parties since WWII.

With the main demands including a reversal of cuts and privatisation o public services, and increase in the minimum wage and scrapping of zero hours and for MPs to only take the wage of an average worker, voters will have the chance to support a real anti-austerity, pro-working class alternative this May.

Acocks Green – Eamonn FLYNN

Bordesley Green – Theo SHARIEFF

Erdington – Joe FOSTER

Hall Green – David WRIGHT
